Lovesick Blues

Lovesick Blues by Frank Ifield was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, November 8, 1962 spending 5 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. A friend of Australian pop singer Frank Ifield, Ronnie Carroll, suggested he record this as the follow up to his international hit "I Remember You." Frank Ifield recalled: "(Producer) Norrie Paramor said, quite correctly, 'Let's not go the American way of a carbon copy follow-up, let's go for something different.' Hank Williams had been a tremendous influence on me in my youth and I liked the idea of doing 'Lovesick Blues' but with a twist beat as the twist was the current rage."
